The Talk Like Jane Austen Quote of the Day:
William was gone: and the home he had left her in was, Fanny could not conceal it from herself, in almost every respect the very reverse of what she could have wished. It was the abode of noise, disorder, and impropriety. Nobody was in their right place, nothing was done as it ought to be. She could not respect her parents as she had hoped. On her father, her confidence had not been sanguine, but he was more negligent of his family, his habits were worse, and his manners coarser, than she had been prepared for.
Mansfield Park Ch 39, (III, 8)

On 9 May 1814, 200 years ago today, Mansfield Park was first advertised for sale. Published on commission, the first print run of 1,250 copies had sold out by November 1814. Say what you like about Fanny and Edmund, it is the novel that gave the world Mrs Norris, and where would be be without her?

Mansfield Park is perhaps the most symbolic, patterned and poetic of all Jane Austen’s novels”. -Maggie Lane “Jane Austen and Food”

More about the book here:
A plain, blank stationer’s notebook from the 1780s in the Bodleian Library contains some of the most famous juvenilia in all of English literature.

Copied out in Jane Austen’s youthful hand, Volume the First, which takes its name from the inscription on the cover, preserves the stories, playlets, verses, and moral fragments she wrote during her teenage years.

Fanny Price and Margaret Hale get some love! Thanks to many Austen pages who have already posted this today.

Another great find by Jane Austen Society of North America – Iowa Region!
Godmersham House, Kent, the home of Jane Austen’s brother Edward Austen Knight. The house was built in 1732. Edward and his family moved to the house in 1797.

Jane Austen visited Godmersham (the best I can tell) in 1798 and 1802, probably 1803, 1805, 1808, 1813. Her sister Cassandra in 1799, 1801, 1802. probably 1803, 1805, 1806, 1808, 1811, 1812.
